PokerListings Named Official WSOP APAC Live Reporting Outlet, Will Also Host Live Stream
Joining forces with two of the most iconic brands in poker, Caesars Interactive Entertainment and 888poker, PokerListings is proud to announce it has been named the Official Live Coverage Provider for the upcoming inaugural World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific at Melbourne’s Crown Casino.
As the official live reporting partner, PokerListings will serve as one of the hosts of the live video web stream for all bracelet event final tables alongside 888poker.tv and WSOP.com
PokerListings will also be the go-to source for live updates from all five bracelet events plus the Caesars Cup and the $50k High Roller.
Poker fans around the world can expect to find:
- Chip counts and hand reports from all events
- Hand-for-hand coverage of every final table
- Daily highlight video show, plus big-name interviews
- Daily event recaps and winner interviews
- Breaking news, blogs, photos and more…
888poker will serve as the primary sponsor of the live web streaming of each key event.
“This is a great fit on a lot of levels,” says Gareth Edwards, Director of 888poker. “PokerListings is a major global poker brand in its own right with sites in 11 languages and a long history of tournament reporting back to the 2005 WSOP Main Event.”
“That kind of breadth and knowledge is irreplaceable in poker. And the team they’ve put together for this event has an extensive history with both the game’s superstars and the local players you’ll want to know more about.”
“The WSOP APAC is going to be a great event and PokerListings will use their experience to really bring it to life.”
PokerListings.com Editor-in-Chief Matt Showell says it’s always a challenge to live up to the high standards of the WSOP but the PL team is ready to bring its own style to the prestigious brand.
“We'll keep you up-to-date on everything that's happening at the tables, absolutely, but one of our trademarks is to dig a little deeper and find the great poker stories that don’t always make it to the front pages.”
“We put our own distinctive spin on poker coverage and you're going to see it in the videos, the live updates and the stories coming out of the Crown Casino.”
PokerListings/888 Main Event Package
As an added bonus for PokerListings readers, an exclusive $15,500 WSOP APAC package is available at 888 Poker with both new and existing players eligible to play for it with just a minimal deposit or direct buy-in of $33.
The package includes the $10,000 buy-in for the WSOP APAC Main Event, accommodation at the Crown Metropol, $2,500 for travel and access to the exclusive 888 VIP party.
